When World Collide

Out of all the species on the world, humans are the most violent. We attack unprovoked, kill without reason, and force other species to adapt to our whims. We are considered the intelligent species of the world. Yet we assume that ultra refined aliens, smarter than us by far, will be peaceful vegetarians. I think we have proven to each other that intelligence does not mean wise. Look at the scientists who dreamed up nuclear energy, advanced weaponry, and biological warfare. Some of the smartest people in the world don't have your best interests at heart, and they share the very same base dna as you. Why would someone from another galaxy care to take care of us when we have shown no inclination to take care of ourselves? Our appetites for meat have increased, how many billion pounds of pork, beef, chicken and other exotic flesh are eaten every year? Every day? Some lions don't eat as much. So these otherworldly creatures would share a dietary oddity? How many people thing, believe, even hope that someone will decend from the heavens and take away all our worries, cares, and make things wonderful for all? One mans heaven is anothers hell. Pet dander sufferers put along with cat fanciers? That makes about as much sense as putting a falcon club next to a toy poodle sanctuary. Humans don't want to take responsability for their own actions, for their own lives for that matter. Yet the expect someone else to do it for them. Why parents will always remain parents. Part of them wants them to grow, the rest wants them to keep coming back. Yet how much blame would cosmic parents get? We blame Obama for not moving fast enough to change things, yet nobody who is in a seat of power really wants change, and is doing everything they can to stop it. Yet he gets the blame in the media. If some alien being came down to repair all the stupidity we've amassed, wouldnt we grow to resent them? Doing something for "their own good" doesn't sit well with children and adults alike. Look how many lawbreaking people there are now, that resent laws and law enforcement with equal hatred. People blindly believe that someone so advanced would have found a way to erase such resentment, like in Star Trek. But wouldnt they be coming here with their own agenda? Why would it benefit us? It's a nice thought that there is someone preparing to take care of us, just packing their carpet bag and prepping an umbrella Mary Poppins style. But you'd have to be a smallminded fool not to take Star Wars advances in mind, not all of us are friendly, why should they be?
